Mobento - Another Place to Search for Educational Videos

It seems like every month or so a new site pops-up that is trying to make it easier to find educational videos. The latest such site that I've seen is Mobento. Mobento's take on searching for educational videos allows you to search by category, organization producing the video, speakers, and length of video. You can refine your search by combining selections from each of those menus.

Applications for Education
Mobento won't change the way that you use videos with your students, but it could be helpful in finding a good video to use in a flipped lesson. Once you find a video you might want to try a service like EduCanon to create a flipped lesson that requires students to answer questions while watching the video.

Mobento - Search for Spoken Words in Videos

There are lots of places to find educational videos on the web. Mobento is one of those places. What makes Mobento different from most educational video hosts is that you can search for spoken words within a video. Mobento not only tells you which videos have specific words spoken in them, it will also show you a timeline of where in the video your specified words are spoken.

Applications for Education
Mobento's collection of videos isn't terribly large right now, but it has potential to be a great service for finding educational video clips that address the specific terms you're searching for.
